Probably the most well-known of all the egg white cocktails is the whiskey sour. It’s a simple recipe using whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup, and one egg white. The ingredients are vigorously shaken together, creating a creamy white layer on top of the sweet and sour cocktail.
Gin Fizz Cocktail
The gin fizz is bright and bubbly with the silky texture of shaken egg white to top it all off. It’s similar to the whiskey sour but uses gin instead and is topped with club soda. The cocktail is a delicate drink with a citrus-forward flavor.
The Clover Club
You’ll fall in love with the beautiful balance of tartness and sweetness in this cocktail. It has gin, raspberry syrup, lemon juice, and an egg white. You can buy premium raspberry syrup, but the cocktail will taste even better if you use homemade syrup.
Frothy Orange Creamsicle Cocktail
This cocktail has the sweet, citrus flavor of an orange muted by the creaminess of the egg white. The combination of egg white and a splash of vanilla extract brings the creamsicles flavors forward and will amaze you.
This elegant egg white cocktail has an herbal, citrus flavor that is distinct and smooth on the palate. It’s a gin cocktail with lemon juice, simple syrup, Cointreau, and thyme sprigs.

Unsurprisingly, the gin sour is similar to the whiskey sour. The whiskey is swapped for gin, and the lemon juice for lime juice. A gin sour has a more tart and biting flavor than a sweet whiskey sour. It’s an ideal egg white cocktail for someone who enjoys gimlets or gin and tonics.
An amaretto sour is a potent drink with two liquors: amaretto and bourbon or whiskey. It has a prominent flavor that combines the warmth of the alcohol with the sweetness of maple syrup and the tartness of lemon juice. To elevate the richness, it includes a few drops of Angostura bitters. The foamy egg white topping helps mitigate the forceful taste of the other ingredients.
White Dragon Tequila Cocktail
Not only does this cocktail have a fancy name, but the flavors are elegant and straightforward. If the orange creamsicle cocktail appeals to you but seems too sweet, try this simpler drink. It has a subtle orange flavor from the Cointreau liqueur, with the same creamy egg white and a dash of lemon juice for tartness.

Mezcal Sour with Strawberries and Ginger
